COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When I think of the word “Stout,” all the words and images that are conjured have one thing in common: LARGE SIZE. I believe a stout should be a celebration of all the robust flavors of its signature style. Therefore, I created the Sixpoint Otis as an accentuation of the distinguishing characteristics of stout beer: roasted flavor, full body, and hop bitterness. My favorite style of stout is Oatmeal Stout - a rare variety that earns its name from brewers adding whole flaked oats to the mash. When added in small quantities, I find the oats do not typically add much flavor to the stouts, but they have an incredible impact on the mouthfeel and body. Celebrate our Oatmeal Stout by enjoying its texture! The oats provide a silky, velvety mouthfeel. Celebrate our Oatmeal stout by enjoying its roastedness! I add extra quantities of roasted barley – the malt that lends stout beer its dark color – to provide a flavor of rich coffee. Celebrate our Oatmeal Stout by enjoying its balance! The deep caramel, toffee, and molasses flavors are complimented by even additions of hops throughout. Celebrate by ordering a pint of the Otis!

On tap at Rattle N Hum, July 2012. Black with a creamy tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, chocolate, some butter. Really creamy mouth feel on this one. Dry aftertaste.

altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2015
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont. Nice dark brown beer with mocha top. Nose is chocolate and malts and oats. Taste is great, lots of malts again and chocolate and licorice. Some hops and milky notes in there as well. Good one.

notalush (5935) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Tap at bobbique - I was excited to find this, as well - dark brown pour with light making it through the edges of the off-white head - roasted malts dominate the aroma, with hints of milky sweetness - I didn’t really sense a lot of hops in the aroma, nor in the flavor - medium-bodied with a slick mouthfeel - there is bitterness there, but it’s more like a coffee bitterness - a bit of cream and a semi-sweet, roasted malt finish - nothing stand-out, but a solid sweet stout.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Pours a murky brown. Tan head. Oddest color I’ve seen in a long time for a beer. Nose is sweet malts. Flavor is kind of funky. Earthy and slightly metallic edge. Malty flavors and a pretty thick aftertaste. Feel is decent. Thick on the liquid and a good enough level of carbonation. I am going to drop the drinkability though on this one. Sure it’s pretty good, but the funk edge on this one is almost too far out. Not my favorite from Sixpoint.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Nitro at Sunset Grill. Aroma is really light. Grainy, sour coffee, bitter chocolate, but only kinda. Not very balanced or unified.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Nitro at Brazen Head. Standard brown-black color with a creamy light brown head. Milky aroma. Flavor of sweet chocolate, almost a "Bosco" flavor, with a nutty graininess underneath. Very faint roasty bitterness at the end. Lotiony mouthfeel. All in all a smooth and fresh chocolately stout that made for a nice brunch.

nbutler11 (1305) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Otis, my man. On tap at Rattle-N-Hum in NYC. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Smells of toasted malt, caramel, and coffee. Tastes of each with added notes of lactose and oatmeal. Well balanced, but not exactly ambitious.

murphym45 (779) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2010
On tap @ Rattle N Hum
Black with lots of tan head that sticks around. Strong coffee/roasty malt aroma a hint of chocolate. A light sweetness on the palate that gives way fairly quickly to a bitterness that sticks around. A little bit more bitter than I expected but enjoyable nonetheless.

mansquito (6984) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Some bar in Williamsburg, NY pint ($6): Pours a black color with a creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and hops. This is very bitter for a sweet stout (in fact, are not oatmeal stouts typically regarded just as normal stouts?). Good amount of hops complimented by the roasted malts. Very soft carbonation and very creamy mouthfeel work together rather well. Chocolate and coffee notes abound. A solid, easy drinking stout.
